AGIP North Africa and the National Oil Corporation of Libya (NOC), to provide telecommunications network and associated services for AGIP
GAS' internal communication needs.

Worth 58 million Euros (US$59.5M), the deal is part of the global Western Libya Gas Project (WLGP) that aims to develop and export large volumes of natural gas to Europe by pipeline.

Alcatel will also be responsible for designing, building and commissioning a sophisticated communication network consisting of telecom and non-telecom subsystems, like access control, closed circuit television and meteorological systems.

A 520 km terrestrial fibre optic network will connect the onshore plants, while a 110 km fibre optic submarine cable will make the link with the offshore platform. The integration of SDH, a VSAT
satellite system, LAN/WAN and various radio systems along with third party equipment and the interface with production installations will result in a carrier-class network addressing all AGIP GAS' communication needs. The project also foresees associated training.
